I booked a female room for 3 nights there and it was really pleasant. First of all, because it is not like a hostel at all. It is a home adapted to be a hostel, with 3 floors with a kitchen in the first. The...More
This is a wonderful hostel in the heart of Edinburgh. I spent three nights there and had a very good time. It is one of the cleanest hostels I've ever been to, which I consider a very important fact, as there are too many hostels...More
We were there in december. An interesting hostel that makes me feel like home, not any merchandised hostel elsewhere. The manager was kind and warm. Info and helps are always available. They even organised a small christmas party for travellers staying there! We sang and...More

Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
